Greetings from the Critique Club

Aha! Now it's your turn! Hello,Rikki.

Your image. I like the controlled patterns you made of the stamps marching across the page and the colors are good. The pun's cute but would have been more readily apparent to our hurried voters if the 'dew' had been more visible. Obviously, you don't want to water the stamps too much, but perhaps a piece of plastic protecting the stamps might work. (Avoiding reflections, of course)

The only other thing I would suggest, Rikki, is to be sure your image is as sharp as it can be. I know it's tempting to just get up close and shoot, but especially with items that have sharp edges and printing, the extra stability of a tripod comes in very handy. (This from a gal who hates tripods.)

You're doing fine, and certainly your participation in the forums makes a DPC day brighter.

Take care. Look forward to meeting you one of these days.

A few more bubbles would have made this even better but still a very good strong image.

Good idea but the "dew" was lost. The stamps are too busy to really show the dew.
